Agree with Sally below, work with a local realtor. There are a lot of free sites providing outdated info and you'll be wasting your time.

The best way to find out how to repair your credit is to contact a mortgage lender. And, the first step in purchasing a home is getting a pre-approval/pre-qual letter from a reputable lender.

Although this information is available it is not really useful because many people list their homes above market value. To sell your home quickly you should look at the competition available and what has recently sold over the past 3-4 months. The same is necessary when you are making an offer. Once you find a home you like you and your Realtor need to carefully look over the comparables so you can make an educated offer.

Price your home correctly and you will always sell in a shorter period of time and for more money. When you price too high there are many people who will not even see your property in their searches. Selling your home is a numbers game in more ways than one. Those potential buyers who are not seeing your home are drastically reducing the chances of you selling your home as quickly as possible and for top dollar. When your home does come up on peoples search results an overpriced home will not compare well with the other homes that are priced closer to their true market value.

Although this information may sound obvious many people still overprice their homes. On average my listings sell for over 98% of their asking price. Because my listings are typically priced correctly they sell very close to our asking price and sometimes they sell for a little over because we attract multiple offers.

In an appreciating market it can make sense to overprice but that is not the market we are currently in and doing so will definitely cost you a lot of money and time.

Good luck to you.

This is true if you are doing an FHA or VA loan... Is this an investment property? If so you'll be fine? If this is a second or third home... You might want to consider FHA or VA financing. I work with several lenders who would be able to help. Please contact me or send me an email

when you go onto my web site you will also find a section that has nothing but San Antonio information...

Hope I was helpful? I look forward to helping you with any questions you may have about San Antonio and or Real Estate in San Antonio...
